I hope there is some change down there, while I don't want to see the "regulary people" go there is definitely an element that needs to go.
What other beach towns on the Jersey Coast do you have murders, drug busts, and just a dirty element on the boardwalk.
I'll take some more upscale places if it drives out what I described above.

Ocean City, Atlantic City, Seaside Heights .... Shall I continue? All the other shore resorts have these crimes too, but they just publicize Wildwoods. The media goes into a frenzy when WW has something bad happen. Quite a few things have happened this summer in OC, and you never hear about it on Channel 6 or 10. You have to read it in the papers.

Allentown and Quakertown are the Camden NJ of Pennsylvania. I have been to other shore points and beaches, they all suck compared to WW.

They need to build some modern hotels in Wildwood instead of staying in those Doo Wop dumps. Look at Ocean City Md. new one on every corner. I really like Wildwood, boardwalk and the beach. Is there a city ordinance that prohibits them from building , lets say a Holiday Inn or a Hilton?

I don't think so. There is a Days Inn down there, and there use to be a Holiday Inn in Crest, down near Diamond Beach.

Quakertown and Allentown are worlds apart. You can walk anywhere in Qtown and there are no gangs. Qtown is actually a small town and Allentown is pretty much a city. Please don't exaggerate.

I would not mind seeing a few store changes on the boardwalk. Just a small change Too many of the same junk stores on the boards. And in city is dead. We use to like walking around town. But there in no since going into town to see empty stores there also
